Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

This past September, we lost iconic character actor Harry Dean Stanton, an unmistakable face from films including Alien, Cool Hand Luke, Pretty in Pink, Twin Peaks and Paris, Texas. At the time of Partly Fiction, Stanton is 86 years old and had worked in over 200 films?or "over 250 maybe, I lost count a long time ago." This loving portrait features candid encounters with close friends including David Lynch and Wim Wenders. "How would you describe yourself?" Lynch asks. Stanton doesn't miss a beat, "There's nothing. There is no self." The pair giggle. "And how would you like to be remembered?" "Doesn't matter." 

Special Tribute Double Bill: In memory of one of cinema’s most iconic character actors, we honour the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton with a unique double-bill screening of Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (8:30 p.m.).
